In  connection with " the routes these  stretches of good roads will' take Mr.  Ramsay called attention to the fact  that they could not be changed to suit  local conditions in that the highway  was a trans-provincial one and that  the Dominion government, which  eventually will pay 4������ per cent, of  their eost, had half the say as to the  routes the hard surface should be laid  on.  " Instructions have been received here  to curtail whei ever possible road and  bridge expenditures, so ��������� as to have  funds to cope with 'the* expected winter unemployment situation.

At present Mr. Ramsay's idea is to utflize the  old K.V. right of way and pnt in the  permanent structure at they site of the  present abandoned K.V. bridge/and  at the same time doing the necessary  work to make sure that future rampages of the Goat will not be likely to  wreck the new bridge, nor cause washouts Bimilar to those that have interfered with traffic in that locality heretofore.

What with the bad  time our train made, an' the good  time the stock-train made, an' the fact  that they started ahead of us, they're  In the yards now. That's a piece of  luck, to start with. 'S nothing unusual for settlers to be held up here  two an' three weeks waiting for their  freight, an' all the time bills piling  up an' cash running "down in a way  * that knocks holes in their pockets."  "But I can't put my_ wife in a  stock-car!" protested Harris.  "There's worse places," McCra*** answered, calmdy worrying a considerable section from a plug of black  chewing tobacco. "Worse places,  Ah should say. Ah'v'e seen times  when a good warm stock car would  have passed for heaven. But that  ain't what Ah have in mind. We'll  all turn in an' get the stock unloaded,  hitch up the horses, pack a load, an'  ?et  away.      Morrison's  hired  man'll  rive his team, an' Tom'll stay here  himself an' look after the rest of thc  stuff.     Ah've been making a canvass,  an' Ah find we have    six    or    seven  families who can be ready.to pull out  this afternoon.      An soon *s Ave get  Into settled country, perhaps wc can  get    accommodation,    such as it  is,  along the way.     But my team will go  along, with a good    tent    an ' some  cooking outfit.      Everyone  has bedding, so we're all right for that. Now,  i if we all hustle we can be started by  four   o'clock,   an'   out   ten   or  twelve  . miles before we pitch camp.      That's  far  enough  for  thc  horses   the  first  day, anyway. How does it suit you?"  "What do vou say, Mr. Morrison?"  "I think Afeck's plan is best.     I've  my wife and the two girls, and there's^  no roof for their heads-here.     I can  find a place for myself, but I've goi to  them started.      Ned is a trusty man;  he will drive my team.     It suits me."  "But after we get there?" said Harr  ris. "For my part, I don't know where  I'm going.      Even with Aleck's help  it will take some time to look up my  land, and build a place to live In. Mind  you," he said, as if forestalling a question    in    their minds, "I'm mightily  obliged for the kindness of your offer,  and    it    isn't ^myself    I'm    thinking  about."  "Hoots, man!" said Morrison.  "We ken who you're thinkin' about,  right well. And a poor man ye'd be  if ye didn't, for a bonnier lass never  came out of Canada, and that's saying  somethin'. But she'll be all right out  there, and a deal better than if you  left her here. There's not many settlers with houses in the country yet,  Aleck tells me, but there's a few, and  it's wonderful the c-las-ticity of "a  shanty orl thc prairie."  "Tom's right." said McCrae. "We  haven't many of the conveniences of  civilization out there yet, but we  haven't the narrowness or vices either.  an' your wife'll bc both welcome an'  safe in any farmer's home. Now, if  it's all settled," continued McCrca,  who had the leader's knack of suppressing indecision at thc psychological moment, "we'll all turn in with the  unloading oi the stock."

In  a few minutes  all  hands,  both  men  and women,  were  busy  at  the  cars.      The horses, stiff and sore after their long journey, stalked rhcu-  matically d^pwn the gangway.      Feeling solid ground  beneath  their feet,  they shook their heads vigorously, as  though to rid them. ^>f the rumble... of  the  cars, and presently were rolling  aud stretching in the warm sun. Dogs  jumped with muddy paws and boisterous affection upon .masters and mistresses; cows lowed, roosters crowed,  and pigs emitted little grunts of that  supreme happiness peculiar    to    their  race.      Many hands  made   the work  light, and by mid-afternoon six sleighs  were loaded for the journey.     All the  women and children were to go with  the party; Morrison and one or two  hired men would remain in Emerson,  complete   the  unloading,    and     take  charge of thc effects until the teams  should return, from their long journey.  McCrae, on account of his knowledge  of the town and of thc needs of the  journey,    was    chosen to secure the  supplies]      His own team, which had  wintered at Emerson, was to take the  lead, and in his  sleigh were a large  tent, some cooking equipment, and an  assortment    of    eatables,    consisting  mainly    of    dried    meat, lard, beans,  molasses, bread, flour,    oatmeal    and  tea.      McCrae provided his team and  equipment without charge; the cpst of  the provisions was reckoned up and  divided among the immigrants in their  various    proportions    to    the    whole  party.  Each settler's sleigh carried that  which seeed most indispensable. First  came the settler's family, which, large  or small, was crowded into the deep  box. -McOrae made them pack hay  in the bottom of thc sleigh-boxes, and  ovcr this were laid robes and blankets, on which the immigrants sat, as  thickly as they could be placed. More  robes and blankets were laid on top,  and sacks Stuffed very ,full of hay  served thc double purpose of cushioning their backs ana conveying fodder  for the animals. Such space as remained was devoted to grain for tlie  horses, bundles of clothing and boxes  of dishes, kitchen utensils, and family  effects. In one of the sleighs' a pig  was quartered, nnd in another a crate  of hens which poked their heads  stupidly through the cracks, blinking  at the bright light., Behind thc  sleighs were tethercd^the cattle.  Morrison came up to Harris's  sleigh, and gave it an approving inspection.  "You will all be fine," he said, "and  a great deal better than wcaryin'  about here. Besides, you're just as  well to bc away," hc added, in a  somewhat lower voice. "McCrae  tells mc if this sun keeps up the roads  will be gone before we know it, and  that means a delay of two or three  weeks. There's bcen a tremendous  snow this winter, and a steady thaw,  what with these north-runnin' rivers,  means floods on thc low-lyin' lands,  and perhaps in thc town.itself, McCrae tells'me lie's none too sure about  the bridge."

Onc or two, in an excess of stubbornness, sat down in the snow and had to  be draggedy' bodily. The settlers  had three or four dogs along, but it  was not considered safe to let them  get at" the -cattle, lest the frightened  animals should break their ropes and  occasion further delay. The situation was only relieved by a number  of men following behind, prodding  vigorously and twisting the: tails of  the most recalcitrant. Presently the  cows' -began to swiifjg along", and, finding that no harm befell them, they  soon settled into a slow but steady  gait, and gave no more trouble until  thcy began to tire with, their travel.  The horses, too, had their own difficulties. Jaded and nervous with  their long trip in the cars, and strange  to the air and surroundings, they fidgeted and fretted, and soon the sweat-,  line was creeping np their backs. The  sleigh trails stood high over the level  of thc surrounding prairie, and the  horses were continually slipping off.  The snow packed in hard balls under  thcir feet, and at intervals the drivers  were obliged to get out and clear it  away.* The March sun, which had  shone down with such fierce heat during thc middle of the day; now swung  far to the westwar'd, facing the  travellers ovcr an ocean of snow  stretching away into .the unknown.  The day grew colder; women and  children drew blankets tighter about  them, and huddled lower _ in the  sleighs to escape a sharp wind that  slipped silently down from the north,  carrying a ground-drift of icy particles in its breath.  i\To be continued)  Flies  Thirty-Five   Feet,  Three   Feet  From Ground. ���������  The air bicycle has arrived.

The longest was about  35 feet. He manged to get about  three feet off the ground in making  this hop. Scientists who watched  him compared his' performance -with  the first attempt at aviation when  motor propelled planes trundled  around on thc ground with occasional leaps into the air.  Poulain's vehicle looks like a  bicycle with planes and a propeller.  To win the money he had to make  a��������� flight of more* than ten yards.  While the crowd looked on, he pedaled furiously along the field- and finally flew clear of the ground.  A Valuable Discovery  New   Method   of   Treating   Hydro-  Magnesite Will Benefit B.C.

Canyon Cily Lisraber Company  Cigarette Stubs  Causing Trouble  Up to the middle of I uly a total of  32 forest fires had been reported in  East Kootenay, according to Norman  MoorSj Cifstjiiefc forester. ������JrHuforooks  who was here od' an official visit at  tbe end of the week.  While the loss so far to merchant*  able timbeJ*. has been comparatively  light, a disturbing feature of the  biases is noted in the fact that eleven  of them were, undoubtedly, due to the  carelessness of fishermen in throwing  away lighted cigarette or cigar stubs.  With the prpyince just entering -upon  the two driest months of the year the  the season is looked forward* to not  without misapprehension, notwithstanding the*fact that exceptionally  severe Ipgal penalties are meted out to  those found guilty of causing fires  under these circumstances.  Outside/of this disturbing factor  foi estx-y protection for this season is  exceptionally promising. Due to providing camp sites for tourists and picnic parties losses due to camp fires has  beenreduced froui 40 per cent, in 18185  to 6 per cent.; in,1920. In handling the  general run of fires still greater efficiency is especte-d this year due to tlie  greater* experience of the fire wardens  and patrolmen���������the former now being  e'qu i pped with- uiotor cars and can  covertheir territory much better; the  enrollment of volunteer fire-fighting  carps available when called upou, 14of  which are fully organized in East  Kootenay, with three in Creston Valley��������� Kitchener. Lisser and Wynndel  ���������while -the new regulations governing forest operators also assures  prompt access tp a layout of standard  fire-fighting ...equipment wherever a  mill or camp is established. This sea-  sun, too, Wonder pumps have been installed at fiye different points, and  froiu experience it has been found, that  one-of these p_utnps is fully as efficient  as������20 men at the same class of work.  In connection with camp sites for  tourists Mr.yMoore states that there  are now fourteen of these in East  Kootenay, three of which are between  Cranbroolc-.and Creston, but that now!  the trans-prqyjncial highway is,being  quite freely us>ed through to Kuskanook niore of these canip sites, will be  proyided.   -'  In connection with local fire patrol  work tbe district' forester states that  Jim Long is-doing eyen better work  t-.ian last season,* being promptly on  t ie job when a fire is discovered, and  puLting it out or getting it under control quite* as expeditiously.  In the output of forest products Mr.  Moore stated that for the, first six  months of this yeair there is a falling  off of 40 -per cent, as compared with  the same period last year, and the decline applies alike to lumber, logs,  posts and poles. About the only  thing moving "right now is poles, and  the export of these is not heayv^, wh.ile  the heavy out of ties earlier in the  year has been* mainly respontible 'for  .holding up the production of lumber*  For- the whole year the comparison  with 1920 will be eyen Itjss favorable  than the first six months' figures indicate,'. There will, of course, be some  lagginft-this coming season, but it is  tint likely to be extensive from pres-  e it plans and market appearantes. *;  While many of the East Kootenay  plants haye operated for part of the  season Mr. Moore does not expect (o  see more than nine running after the  first of August, one of which will be  Lhe Winlaw mill at^Wtfnndel, which  in s iti to be operating advantageously  as to maximum cut at minimum cost,  and is handling an exceptionally fine  c'ass of logw.  With the starting up of the Home-  seekers' Agency mill at Wynndel there  are now eight sawmill plants in Creston Valley, with ii, daily capacity of  posHibly 175.000 feet. The Homefleok-  ers' mill is cutting on a limit of 2000  acres on Duck mountain, the object  being to get the aruble part of this  area cleared of Hmb1������r no that lt can be  olfwed foi' sale to prospective Hottlot-n,  ���������over-il of tho men who will settle on  the land being now employed in she  mill crew. ���������   .    ���������  Although not posscsced of uxact information at this time, Mr. Mooro was  of opinion that'��������� possibly 100 million  feet of lumber was stacked In the vail-  mis millyarda In East Kootenay, and  whllo a good crop on the prairie will  cause a healthy demand, with this enormous stock to draw from It would  be unwise to look for much of a revival hi tlio timber Industry for pos-  slbly twelve months. *  Less Troublesome  Adjustments  As a rule the adjustment you get on a  defective tir*?5 dosen't quite satisfy you.

This  is a question asked by hundreds of people. It is generally known that  prices of raw materials have fallen yet when one comes to buy the finished  product into -which these raw materials have been converted, the price asked is practicably the same as during the war. What'is the reason? The  answer may be largely expressed in one word: Waste.  It is universally recognized that the prevailing high freight rates operate directly to increase the price of all goods, first by increasing the price  of the raw materials and secondly by still higher charges on the finished  article. One of the chief factors responsible for high freight rates is:  Waste.'    Here are a few illustrations of this waste of which complaint is  i&lcTktjL-v ���������  Hie British Way  Upholds   Officials   Who   Speak  For'  Nation Without Authorization.  Speaking of the.reprimand administered to Rear-Admiral Sims by United  States Secretary Denby for his denunciation of American Sinn Feiners and  of utterances made by Admiral Mc-  Gruder regarding the United States'  attitude towards France, the New-  York Times points out, by way o������  contrast, that the British Government  does not check up ��������� its officials when  they presume to speak for the nation  without .direct authorization. The  Tribune recalls that. in Cuba a British consul who threw the British flag  over Americans facing a firing squad  was not reprimanded. Nor was Captain Chichester reprimanded in Manila Bay-when he intervened between  Admiral Dewey and the German  squadron, virtually challenging Germany to war if ah attack was made  upon the American ships.  He Took Wile's  Advice At Time He Did,  ^���������^ This Regina Man,  If the whole of the watery vapor in  the atmosphere were to fall at once in  the form of rain it would not, according to expert's, cover the entire surface  of the earth to a depth of more than  five inches.   '  'Before the United States Government took over the railways of that  country for operation during tlie war the comparatively simple job o'f changing a nozzle tip in the front end of a locomotive could be done by a machinist, or a machinist and helper, or even a handy man alone. Today under  the present classification rules governing the labor unions, in order to  change a nosale tip it is' necessary to call a boilermaker and his helper to  open the door, because that is boilermakers' work; to call a pipeman and  his helper to remove the blower pipe, because that is pipeman's work; and  to call a machinist and his helper to remove the tip, because this is machinists' work; also for the same force to be employed for putting in the new tip.  Prior to Federal control of the railways in the United States it was hot  an uncommon practice for a machinist and his helper fo take care of all of  the work necessary on an electric headlight of a locomotive. Under the  McAdoo,,Agreement the work is now so classified as to distribute the same  among three crafts, namely, machinists, sheet metal workers and electricians. If each of the mechanics performing the work has a helper, this has  the effect of six men performing a piece of work that could be and was  formerly taken care of by two men.  Under present rules where arrivals of trains require the service of employees two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening, say 8 a.m.  to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., railroads now have to employ two shifts  of eight hours each, or sixteen hours service where there is only four hours'  actual work. Furthermore, where two such shifts are worked the starting  time -must be between 7Tand 8 a.m., and if the arrival of a train or other  operating conditions require a man on duty at 6 a.m. he m^ist be paid for  five hours each day in addition to regular eight-hour day.  The following illustrates the method of paying a \yrccking crew under  the McAdoo Agreement when performing road service: A wrecking crew  composed of six men leaves its home terminal at 8 a.m., goes a distance of  50 miles to clear up a wreck; work of clearing main track is completed at  6 p.m."; crew ties up io.r sleep and rest from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. next morning  (wrecking outfit i; equipped with sleeping facilities); resume duty 7 a.m.;  pick up refuse and arrive at home terminal 2 p.m. Under the National  Agreement it is necessary to pay the entire crew continuously,for the first  24 hours from the time they leave their home terminal, computed as follows:  From S a.m. to 4 p.m., eight hours straight time; 4 p>m. to 12 midnight,  eight hours- of time and one-half, or 12 hours; 12'midnight to 8 a.m., eight  hours at double time, or 16 hours; 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., six hours at straight  time. Total of 42 hours paid, although crew actually performed service  from 12 noon to 6 p.m. first day, six hours, and from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.,  second day. three hours^ It will.be noted actual time worked during the  entire period was nine hours; balance of the time was consumed in waiting  and travelling, s.nd it will be further noted the crew was released entirely  from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m., during which time they were paid at time  and onc-hal: and double time while actually off duty and sleeping.  Scores of oilier instances of a like character, all of which are substandard by an exhaustive inquiry into thc subject, could be given. The above  however goe? to show the enormous economic waste taking place daily in  connection v-i:h railway work, which waste must be paid for, and is being  <;>-.'���������.!.[ tor, V.* :hc people in excessive freight and passenger rates.
